I purchased one (and only one) module to upgrade my ThinkPad T430 from 4GB to 8GB and I am super-happy with what I got. So let's do it by paragraphs.

PACKAGING: comes in well protected in a plastic case with a see-thru top. Was easy to take it out.

INSTALLATION: fit right in, took literally seconds. The manual (it's a leaflet) reminds us to remove the battery before upgrading. Good advice.

COMPATIBILITY: like I said, I only bought one module and it matches perfectly with the other 4GB that's made by someone else.

PERFORMANCE: running the 'Windows Experience' benchmark (Windows 7, 64-bit) shows improvements as follows:

- CPU and Disk, no change, as expected.
- Memory (RAM) 5.9 -> 7.5
- Graphics 5.1 -> 6.5 (nice)
- Gaming graphics 6.4 -> 6.5

Pretty good for a not so expensive upgrade.

Working as expected. MacBook Pro picked it right from the start. Using 8 gigs made a huge difference on OSX and for the price could not be better

This item arrived FASTER than its projected delivery time. I have never installed RAM in a laptop before. The instructions were a bit lacking but I was able to find a youtube video to see what I was doing wrong. Once installed it works great. I effectively doubled my RAM for less than $30. Installed in 20 mins (could have been 5 if I had done it before)

Worth the purchase!!

I found it very helpful to see that someone with my exact computer had purchased and installed this RAM successfully, so I'll post the same.

I replaced the 2x2GB RAM with 2 of these memory sticks in my MacBook Pro, Mid-2012 model (2.5GHz Intel Core i5). The installation process is simple enough but I did not replace the memory myself (why risk it when the student help desk can do it with experience for free?). If you'll do it yourself I would recommend that you keep track of where the screws came from, though - apparently some of them are different sizes than the others sometimes.

Everything seemed to work when I powered it back up after the installation, though I did have to reboot again before it could find my campus WiFi and connect up automatically. Since then smooth sailing! As a graduate student I tend to desire between 4-8 apps open at a time over three "desktops" and 4GB of RAM just wasn't enough. I've only got 4 apps open now but it's already clear that menu and program start-up times are much better, and even basic things like searching for a file or opening a massive folder in Finder.

I'll certainly update my review if I have any issues pop up but so far these improvements make this purchase totally worth it!

It's very easy to install, and its performance is OK. My Windows 8 laptop is now at 8 GB, I like it, and maybe I will buy another 4GB, because the price is OK too.

Bought this for a new Asus laptop - installation was easy and laptop immediately recognized the RAM upgrade. A steal for the price.

The Ram installed easily and worked wonderfully! My Laptop ran much smoother after I installed it. Packaging was easy to open, and Ram was easy to install.

Installed painless in my laptop and worked great. Good price and the CL11 recommendation for my laptop lead me to buy this product.

Works great! It is compatible with the Synology DS1515+. I had to reseat it once to get it to recognize it.

I purchased this RAM for my MacBook Pro (2010), and when I installed it I immediately starting getting kernel panics and system crashes. I removed the RAM, made sure it was clean and the sockets were clear, reinstalled the RAM in the opposite slots, and still had problems.

Bad RAM. So I returned it and was quickly refunded my money. Unfortunately they were out of stock so I had to ultimately purchase from someone else. But I have no complaints with how this company dealt with my issue. There are bad chips out there, and sometimes they wind up in customers hands. A good company makes that process as painless as possible, and these guys did that. So three stars for Doing It Right.
